Earned another 173.6 million dollars overseas during its second weekend, including a 111.865 million dollar Friday to Sunday launch in China. That brings its global total to 370 million dollars worldwide, and Monday is a holiday in China. The China debut was the eighth-largest ever in what is now the biggest moviegoing marketplace in the world. It was the fourth-biggest launch in China for an import, and Universal Pictures' second-largest launch (behind The Fate of the Furious (2017)). And the entire five-movie Jurassic Park/Jurassic World franchise has now earned over 4 billion dollars worldwide, sans inflation or overseas expansion. Even if it ends up frontloaded in China, fans will still be looking at an over or under 220 million dollar figure. Even if it plunges hard in North America and "only" earns 225 million dollars (like The Fate of the Furious (2017)), it will still (presuming a 200 million dollar plus haul in China) have earned around 700 million dollars plus worldwide, plus whatever it makes in the rest of the world. If it pulls a 130 million dollar opening and a 325 million dollar finish (about what we all expected from Jurassic World (2015)) domestically along with a Chinese total closer to 250 million dollars, that's 833 million dollars worldwide, plus whatever else it has in the can overseas.

The Italian version has three scenes trimmed for violence before submitting the film to the local censorship commissions. These are: 1) T-Rex inside a cage swallowing a goat 2) Indoraptor swallowing the bitten-off hand of Ken Wheatley) Ted Levine and then roaring his hat off. 3) T-Rex and Carnosaur ripping in two the body of Eli Mills (Rafe Spall) See more »
Like a lot of others are saying the first part of the film, where they are escaping from the island is great and quite exciting and sets the film up pretty well.
However once the major action scene is over and they have to focus on the main story things start to go downhill. I think what bothers me the most is that a lot of the writing is just lazy and not well thought through or truely creative. Instead we get more of the same themes from the original JP films plus some more from JW. (Mutant dinosaur + evil corporate guys)
All of the main characters stories are pretty unbelievable and there isn't enough investment in developing their individual personalities / backstory so we understand why they behave the way they do. Sometimes I feel like the major action scenes were thought up first and then the story was just sort of inserted between them as a glue so we have a way of getting from one action scene to the next.
If you go and see this film you will probably enjoy it and it will most certainly entertain you for a while but after the moment has passed I am not left with the sense that I have seen something truely groundbreaking. Unfortunately I can't help but compare it to the original Jurassic park film and consider how it doesn't even come close to the terrifying moments of suspence and the brilliant portrayal of the different characters we got in JP1.
Given that there are so many 9+ reviews on here maybe i am in the minority but I just feel like we are letting Hollywood get away with lazy writing, which contains numerous plot holes just so we can marvel at some cool CGI. We really should'nt be satisfied with this state of affairs. We should all be demanding better, more creative writing that continues to offer us something new and exciting. This will only happen if we stop rating these mediocre generic blockbuster films so highly.
Was it was entertaining? yes without a doubt, but this is nowhere near a 9/10 film and you all know it. When rating these films please be honest with yourselves and send Hollywood a message. Don't let them think that lazy writing is ok. We aren't idiots and we do value a well written and interesting story.
